Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that A Belle for Christmas is a 2014 holiday movie in which a selfish and money-lusting woman goes after a kind widower even though she dislikes his two small children. When the family adopts a puppy, her dog allergies and territorial behavior kick in and she secretly takes the dog to the pound to be euthanized. The girlfriend also steals the dead mother's jewelry. A boy claims a neighbor threatened to take his ".22 rifle and open fire on our front lawn." Kids steal a truck and lock a mean babysitter in a closet. Although religion isn't specifically mentioned, there are frequent oblique references to heaven, from where the deceased mother is said to be looking down.
